This is Camera Trap Image Processing Software.
The software is written in Java so you need to have the JDK to install it.
If you are using the version that uses batch files (as written in the manual) the assumption is you are using the software with Windows.
This software if for detecting crossings of linear features, such as fences.

Event Finder Suite - May 2020
We have expended our software to handle a camera trap image processing workflow.
This software is our current work in progress.
It includes four main programs:
- CameraTransfer for moving images from a memory card or other initial directory to an input directory
- EventSplitter for quickly dividing images into events based on time
- EventFinder for dividing images into events based on time, identifying events that are really noise, and selecting the best image in a set for human processing
- EventTagger is a interface for tagging images using the csv file produced by EventSplitter or EventFInder

These instructions are also a work in progress, but we throught you would prefer some imperfect instructions rather than no instructions at all.
If you use this software in your research please let me know. I would really appreciate knowing this software if being used.
